Measurements and analysis on threephase power systems are inherently more complex than on singlephase systems. Although oscilloscopes can capture voltage and current waveforms with high sample rates, further calculations are required to produce key power measurements from the data. The oscilloscope based threephase solution allows to capture threephase voltage and current waveforms with higher sample rates, longer record lengths using the HiRes acquisition mode that goes up to 16bits and with the support of automated measurements produce key power test results. The Power converters based on Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), such as variablefrequency motor drives can complicate measurements since it is very important to extract precise zero crossings for the PWM signals, thus making an oscilloscope a recommended test tool for validation and troubleshooting for motor designers. Special software, designed to automate power analysis on inverters, motors, and drives, greatly simplifies important threephase power measurements on PWM systems and can help engineers get faster insights into their designs. The Inverter Motor Drive Analysis (IMDA) solution from Tektronix helps engineers design better and more efficient threephase motor drive systems, taking full advantage of the advanced user interface, six or eight analog input channels, and ‘High Res’ mode (16 bits) on the 5 Series/6 Series B MSO. The IMDA solution provides fast, accurate, and repeatable results for electrical measurements on industrial motors and drive systems for AC induction motors, permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), and brushless DC (BLDC) motors. It can be configured to measure DC to threephase AC converters, such as those used in the electric vehicles.

Measurement overview
Threephase power converters such as variable frequency drives require a range of measurements during the design process. The Inverters, Motors, and Drives Analysis package for the 5 Series/6 Series B MSO automates key electrical measurements which are grouped into the Electrical Analysis group. The measurements can be configured to measure the Input or Output wiring configuration.
The measurements can be set to measure 1V1I (1Phase2Wire), 2V2I (1Phase3Wire), 2V2I (3Phase3Wire), 1V1I (1Phase 2Wire DC) or 3V3I (3Phase3Wire), and 3P4W (3Phase4Wire) to support various supply and motor configurations. Measurements can be performed linetoline or linetoneutral, to support delta and wye or star configurations.
Harmonics
Power waveforms are rarely textbook sinusoids. Harmonics measurements break down nonsinusoidal voltage or current waveforms into their sinusoidal components, indicating the frequency and amplitude for each component.
Harmonics analysis can be performed up to 200^{th} harmonic order. The maximum harmonic order can be set to suit your needs by specifying the range in the measurement configuration. THDF, THDR and fundamental values are measured for each phase. Measurements can be evaluated against the IEEE519 or IEC 6100032 standard, or custom limits. Test results can be recorded in a detailed report indicating pass/fail status.
The Harmonics plot shows the test results for all three phases grouped together so user can correlate the test results between the phases. The plot also shows the test results visually. The harmonics bars are highlighted in green color during a pass condition, and highlight to red color when it exceeds the test limits. This gives a quick insight when debugging for harmonics design.
Power quality
This measurement provides critical threephase power submeasurements including: frequency and RMS magnitudes of voltage and current, crest factors of voltage and current, PWM frequency, and phase angle for each phase. It also displays the sum of true power, sum of reactive power, sum of apparent power components.
Additionally, in the LineNeutral configuration, this measurement displays True Power, Reactive Power, and Apparent Power components of all the threephases.
Voltage and current vectors can be displayed on a phasor diagram so you can quickly judge phase shift for each phase and the balance among phases. Each vector is represented by an RMS value and phase is computed using the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) method.
The Power quality measurement can be configured to provide critical threephase power measurements on the output side, including: frequency and RMS magnitudes of voltage and current, crest factors of voltage and current, PWM frequency, true power, reactive power, apparent power, power factor, and phase angle for each phase.
Efficiency
Efficiency measures the ratio of the output power to input power. The IMDA solution supports efficiency of threephase AC and Inverter configurations. By using the 2V2I method, threephase efficiency can be measured using eight oscilloscope channels (2 voltage and 2 current sources on the input side and 2 voltage and 2 current sources on the output side). The solution calculates efficiency at each phase (for 3V3I configuration) and the total (average) efficiency of the system based on the different input and output wiring combinations.
Ripple analysis
Ripple is defined as the residual or unwanted AC voltage on a constant DC component. It is typically measured on the DC bus. This measurement helps to understand how efficiently the signal is getting converted from ACDC on the input side, and the impact of unwanted components on the PWM signal on the output side.
Direct Quadrature Zero (DQ0) analysis
The behavior of threephase AC machines can be described by rotating voltage and current equations as below.
Where,
A, B, and C are three phase AC signals.
'Vg' is the corresponding gain.
'w(t)' is the 2pi×f×t.
The voltages (V) and currents (I) at the AC interface are usually separated, typically 120 degrees out of phase. These V and I components are timevarying, which means there is no representation of a steadystate operation point.
Generally, AC signals are realworld signals, but converting them to DC helps get an abstract representation of the direct quadrature transform. The DQ0 assists in emulating the controller. This information helps to understand more about what the controller is doing and allows to tune the controller design.
The DQ0 transformations typically rotate the reference frames of AC waveforms to convert them to DC signals. This allows simplified calculations on the DC signals before performing the inverse transform to recover the actual threephase AC results.
To measure and monitor the control system’s output, the designers depend on FPGA’s and ASICbased hardware to handle sensor data to get the DQ0 information and then check the control information through multiple iterations. This solution involves a complex and time taking process.
It is practically challenging to measure or probe the DQ0 signals. A typical solution provides an external stimulus to the controller to replicate the controller input signals and the AnalogDigital Controller (ADC) outputs as the DQ0 signals.
To address this challenge, users depend on the software application DQ0 solution to understand the complex dynamic phenomena in power control systems.
The IMDA solution features DQ0 transformation, which rotates the reference frames of the three phase waveforms, so they become DC signals. Calculations can be simplified on these DC quantities before inverting them and getting to the actual threephase AC results. A basic control scheme is shown in the following figure.
Tektronix offers a patented onscope measurement called DQ0 under the electrical analysis measurement category as an added option using Clarke’s and Park’s transformation matrix. The DQ0 feature is available as an option 5IMDADQ0/6IMDADQ0 on the 5 series and 6 series MSO.
The DQ0 method calculates the angle (θ) as 2*pi*f*t and extrapolates the reference frame based on where we expect timevarying signals to be. The DQ0 frame (phasor diagram) rotates with the right speed and frequency and not necessarily in phase with the rotor, which helps to understand the instantaneous state of the motor.
This measurement is supported in the 3V3I configuration, takes the threephase voltage or current signals from the motor as inputs, and converts them into DQ0 coefficients acting as a powerful debugging tool for the motor designers to tune their PWM controller circuit designs.
The measurement computes realtime DQ0 transformation by converting the 3phase drive output voltage or current waveforms. The transform matrix converts timevarying AC signals into timeinvariant DC components. This helps to reproduce the control system's understanding of instantaneous motor torque and speed. The use of the DQ0 transformation allows motor designers to correlate the performance of the 3Phase power section to control system of the hardware algorithms and design. The overlapped DQ0 and 3phase ABC vectors act as a good debug feature for designers to observe simultaneously both vector axis on the same plot.
There are different outputs of this measurement such as scalar values with the magnitude of D and Q, RMS values with statistics, derived math waveforms, and a phasor diagram. Math waveform provides the DC transformed waveform. This provides the different views of the control system outputs in a single view.
By observing the DQ0 results, some important inferences can be drawn, such as variations indicating to RMS ripple, peak to peak values, and higherorder harmonics. These parameters directly relate to understanding the operation of the algorithms in the control systems. Without this information, it would be difficult to understand the performance of the motor control systems.
Dynamic measurements using trend analysis
A common requirement in motor drive analysis is an ability to look at the motor response over longer test times, records, and an extended number of acquisitions to monitor the DUT behavior over varying load conditions. This dynamic measurement helps to understand optimal designs and interdependency between different parameters like voltage, current, power, frequency, and their variance based on the load conditions. You can manually zoom and get the specific region of interest to look at test results at the particular region of the waveform.
IMDA solution offers two unique trend plots on the power quality measurement to support such requirements:
 Time trend plot
 Acq trend plot
Each plot has its advantages and can be used to plot the supported submeasurements under power quality measurement. The time trend plot shows the measured value per cycle, or for an acquired waveform (a record), while the acq trend plot shows a mean of the measured value per record, over each of the acquisitions. The acquisition count can be set during the test configuration. This allows you to capture long records of data to perform deep record analysis and understand the dynamic behaviors of the motor response. The plots can be saved as a CSV file for postprocessing.
Mechanical analysis
IMDA mechanical analysis group (Option IMDAMECH) supports hall sensor output signals to calculate speed, acceleration, and direction information. The acceleration results are reported as part of the speed measurement. The measurement requires the number of pole pairs and corresponding gear ratio to measure key motor parameters. The direction measurement expects a sequence of hall sensor rising edges to be configured before operation and validates them during the operation.
TPP1000 passive probes or high voltage differential THDP0200/100 probes can be used to capture the sensor outputs depending on the motor output power and noise levels. Digital channels with TLP logic probes are recommended for use instead of analog because of lesser noise and can help to conserve analog channels for other tests operations and use single flex channel for the measurement.
Speed measurement
Hall sensor signal transition as shown in the following figure.
Speed is defined by the following equation,
Where,
Difference between T_{SP} and T_{ST} is defined by the number of pole pairs.
T_{ST} is the start if the electrical pulse
T_{SP} is the stop if the electrical pulse
60 is the RPM (revolitions per minute)
G is the gear ratio.
Acceleration
Acceleration is rate of change of speed per unit time. It is defined as
Speed and direction support following plots:
 Histogram
 Time Trend
 ACQ Trend
Importance of speed ACQ trend plots
The ACQ trend along with the histogram plot shows jitter on motor speed, which otherwise requires dedicated instrument like a flutter meter to measure. This jitter information (variations in edge timing) measures the motorspeed consistency.
Motor startup profile
Motor designers are interested to investigate the motor startup profile during the design stage. The time trend gives the instantaneous speed information of a motor which otherwise is hard to measure.
In the following Time trend plot showing startup sequence of a motor image, where the startup time taken by the motor is 2.3s from OFF to a ON state. Similarly, one can perform ON to OFF state and gain insights into the deacceleration process as shown in the figure Time trend plot showing deceleration of a motor into a stop state image.
Direction
Some applications like drills, washing machines, and electric pumps require motor to operate and change directions rapidly. The direction measurement helps with this analysis. The order of rising edges or falling edges of hall sensor output determines the direction of rotation. The direction measurement needs all three hall signals. They are available as configurable parameters for the direction measurement and are validated during the motor operation. Generally, a ABC sequence is interpreted as clockwise (CW) and a ACB sequence is interpreted as counterclockwise (CCW).
For example, if the first rising edge is from HALL A and a rising edge of HALL B exists at 120 degrees, then the rotor rotation sequence is ABC. Else, if the second rising edge of HALL C occurs at 120 degrees, then the sequence is ACB.
Here is the formula used to compute the direction information.
Order (Clockwise) = (ABC)
Order (Counterclockwise) = (ACB)
Where Order function checks for the sequence of rising edges on all three hall sensor signals.
Direction can be displayed as an ACQ trend plot to give a visual indication on an exact timestamp when the motor reversed the direction helping during the debug. This is shown as a sample plot in the following figure.
